Fans of our TeamSG canoeists will be delighted to find out that the Singapore Canoe Marathon will return for its 2018 edition on 14th January! Themed “Canoeing for Life”, the event will include more than just the high performance races – our national canoeists will be racing alongside the community as well!
Some of the event’s segments include Paracanoe, in which the Singapore Canoe Federation’s Paracanoe Development Programme will team volunteers up with their beneficiaries, giving them the opportunity to experience this water sport. The Kids Race and Super Masters categories will also, respectively, show our young ones and seniors that age is no barrier to sport. Find out more at their Facebook event page!

With the women’s team having done us proud at the World Floorball Championships last month, it is now time for the men to shine! From 22nd to 27th January, the team will be in Jeju competing at the 2018 Men’s World Floorball Championships Qualification meet.
Based on the standings of the two previous World Floorball Championships, the men’s team is currently placed 17th in the world and will surely be looking to move up the ladder at this competition. They will be led by captain Gary Wong, who also works as a Sports Development Officer at the Singapore Floorball Association.
